A deluge of irate crowd cum protesters cordons the premises against the scandal ridden former Eskom CEO and boss Brian Molefe. The reappointed Eskom boss is expected to be met by angry protesters on Monday morning when he returns to his job as Eskom’s CEO.
Molefe resigned last year following the release of the Public Protector’s State of Capture report which linked him to the controversial Gupta family.
The Eskom board decided to offer Molefe his position back after a dispute about his R30 million pension payout which Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown wasn’t happy about.
Congress of the People has indicated that some of it’s members will be at Megawatt Park at 7:30am.
Security officers are not allowing the media to enter the premises and there’s a police vehicle on scene in the event that protesters do arrive.
There’s been widespread condemnation of the board’s decision to offer Molefe his job back, especially after he left the utility under a cloud after his relationship with the Guptas was made public.
With the African National Congress (ANC) joining organised business, labour unions and other parts of society in condemning this move, it appears this could be a test of strength between Luthuli House, the Eskom board and possibly President Jacob Zuma.
